with the author of the communist. who was frank marshall davis? >> he was born in kansas 1905 died 1987 and ended up in chicago ultimately honolulu where he would meet a young man named rocco bomb in the 1970's. he was introduced by his grandfather stanley dunham and i should back up a little bit, ed davis was african-american come early in his life he was a republican as a lot of black americans were from lincoln through fdr and then became part of the of progressive left that is a long complicated story in the book then went so far to the left during world war ii he joined the communist party usa. that is a big deal because there were a lot of american communists who never joined communist party usa when you do that you literally swore in allegiance to the soviet union, the stalinist soviet union and you committed yourself to what communist party usa that was the soviet american republic. so davis really went to the other side. after that he ended up and was the founding editor in chief of the communist party publication in chicago that was the down the line pro kremlin publication into that ye

, but again that number is tentative right now. commissioner davis also said he asked everyone to send in leads, send in all possible leads in this situation saying they have no specific report of a truck which must have come up at some point. pierre, have you heard about that? somebody thought they spotted a truck? >> i have not heard that information. also very interesting, diane, that the commissioner talked about the fact that they want witnesses who fled the scene to call back in to give them information that they will be going to the hospital fanning out talking to people who were injured. again, this thing is in the very early stages. and they have to make sure that they didn't miss anything. because that critical clue could come from someone that could direct their investigation going forward. >> police have been calling on all eyewitnesses to send in video, to send in photographs, to tell authorities what they know. we want to talk to another eyewitness on the scene right now, joe conway, where were you when this happened, joe? >> i was about 500 feet from the finish line. >>

of september one, 2009, in the 1300 block of brinkly road, temple hills, maryland. ashley davis was hit by a car crossing the street to get to a school bus stop. some of the classmates watched in horror. >> you should be able to get to school. she was on her way, doing the right thing. >> even to this day today, that day will never be out of my mind, i'll never forget it. >> reporter: ashley davis suffered terrible injuries and died two days later. she was a freshman at the high school, struck by a lincoln, that then hit a mini van and a 17-year-old boy. ashley davis's parents sued the school board system. >> the school board was negligent, adopting a policy to provide for safe transportation. the policy was they were going to pick up ashley on her own side of the street. they never did, she was forced to cross the street and got killed. >> she would be graduating this year and going to prom this year. >> reporter: at the end of the trial earlier this month, the prince george's county jury awarded the daviss family a 90 million award. >> i just want somebody held responsible for what ha
investigation, michael. >> ed davis said exactly what he should as a public official. he's an outstanding police chief. i know him. in my view, inside, he knows this is a terrorist attack and that's what the federal government has to figure out with them right now. >> michael, thank you. i'm going to turn over live coverage to chris matthews, my colleague standing by with the latest information as well. chris? >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews with the latest on what's happening in boston. boston police say at least two bombs exploded near the finish line of the boston marathon today. a third bomb, as we just heard, exploded at the jfk library a short time later. nbc news reports they were small improvised explosive devices. here's video of that first explosion today. police say at least two people are dead already and 23 more injured. in fact, witnesses and hospital officials now say some of those injuries were severe including people with missing limbs. governor deval patrick called what happened today a horrific attack. officials say that a third explosion, as we said, occurred at the jfk
judgment. i think the caution you're hearing from governor patrick and ed davis, the police commissioner, is about right. the who matters less now than that we're getting people to safety and they got people to safety quickly. >> tom fuentes, certainly the fact that there were multiple devices and seemingly coordinated, we don't know the means by which they were coordinated, but that is significant. that is though they might not be sophisticated devices, that at least shows a level of planning or sophistication in how this was carried out. >> well, that could be, anderson, but you could easily have one person drop one device in a trash container at one location, walk 100 yards to the other location, drop one in there, and then maybe remotely detonate it by cell phone or have some type of a timer or delayed fuse or some way to detonate it, where they could both go off together but not require multiple people to deliver them. so this could be as few as one person or one, two, five people, maybe, involved in this -- setting this thing up. it's possible for one to have done it. >> tom, how m
to be here today. this has been an incredible 2-and-a-half years from the initial idea when ben davis asked me to consider the bridge and how it can be turned into a canvas and having thought about it and created an assimilation on the computer, animation that so many people saw and were inspired to get behind and enabled to happen. so many people to thank, but certainly folks at cal trans and mayor's office, governors office. there were so many hoops we had to jump through. getting the permit was one of the miracles. i thank you for believing in public art and helping us get this done. amy has been amazing, our executive art director.
